The Prophet Hosea Foresaw the Menace (10 May 2016, 2 Iyar, 5776)
Hosea chapter 9 speaks (like the rest of the Book of Hosea) of the Northern Ten Tribes who are referred to in general as "Ephraim."
We have chosen to concentrate on three verses (Hosea 11:6,7,8) to give an indication of what Hosea was speaking of in general.
The Prophet takes the scenario of what was happening in his time as a framework to describe what would happen in the End Times.
He refers to Ephraim (the Ten Tribes) who are facing destruction. The Assyrians were attacking them. They tried to receive help from Egypt who appears to have betrayed them.
Some of them did flee to Egypt and from there they were forced to move on.
Waiting in the wings are the Ammonites represented by their god Chemosh.
[The word "Chemosh" for some reason is translated as thorns (Hosea 9:6) in English translations. Chemosh however was the the god of the Ammonites.]
The Ammonites dwelt to the east of the Israelites and after they were exiled moved into take over part of the former Israelite settlements. What happened in the past foreshadows what will happen in the futire, perhaps in our time.
We are translating the text straight from the Hebrew text as we understand it. This differs a little from conventional translations. For an explanation of most the differences in translation see
The Book of Hosea. Chapter Nine
6 They [Ephraim] went away after being robbed.
Egypt will gather them up.
Moph will bury them.
Desire for their silver [Islam - Machmad - Mohamed] desires their silver.
Chemosh [The Ammonites] will inherit them.
Thorns will take over their habitats.
In modern terms the word for Egypt ["Mitsraim'] can mean present-day Egypt and the Muslims in general. In certain contexts it could also refer to Turkey or to Russia.
Muslim Arab countries exploit the USA for the money it gives them while in the long term wishing for the destruction of America.
The Ammonites could mean the Mexicans who would come in and take over part of the USA if they ever got the chance.
#7. Is Mexico (and other Hispanic peoples?) Moab?
# We may therefore raise the possibility that Ammon and Moab helped give rise to the Spanish and Portuguese and through them to All Latin Americans? This would explain much. There may also have been preliminary input from Moab and Ammon amongst the Amerindians of Latin America. #
7 The Days of visitation have come.
The Days of retribution have arrived.
Israel shall realize that the Prophet is Evil, a madman, a person of mental instability.
Because of your great sins.
And the increase of hatred.
The Ten Tribes (and perhaps Judah as well) will have tried to establish a rapport with the forces of Islam (Machmad-Mahomed 9:6).
They will be punished for this.
Or rather they will be punished for their sins but Islam will be the means of punishment.
Israel will realize when it is too late that Islam is sick, mentally disturbed. it cannot help itslef. It will always bring disaster to whoever draws close to it.
8 Ephraim looked to think like the god of the Prophet. A trap was set on all his pathways. There is hatred in the house of his god.
This is almost self-explanatory.
Modern establishment thinking is to seek common ground with Islam, to make peace with it. Whatever is done in that direction only brings calamity. it is a trap in every direction.
The Muslim places of worship are the agents of hatred against the west, against the USA and Britain, and against the Jews and Biblical belief.
It is sometimes claimed that Islam has a more enlightened side.The claim is made that in the past Islam had a golden age of toleration and cultural advancement. This is myth.
The Jewish scholar Maimonides is sometimes referred to as an example of someone who lived and prospered under Islam.
Maimonides was a great Jewish rabbi who also served as personal physician to Saladin the Muslim ruler of the Middle East centered on Egypt.
In reply let us see what Maimonides himself said on the matter:
Excerpt from Maimonides (1135-1204)
"Letter to Yemen"
concerning Mohammed and Islam
" Let you understand, my brothers, the Holy One Blessed HE through the liability created by our iniquities cast us among this nation, the people of Ishmael [i.e. Muslim Arabs] who strongly oppress us. They connive to do us wrong and despicably downgrade us. This is what the Almighty has decreed, "Your enemies shall judge you" (Deuteronomy 32:31). There never came against Israel a more antagonistic nation. They tyrannize us with the most oppressive measures designed to lessen our number, degrade us, and make us as despicable as they themselves are. King David, may he rest in peace, saw through Divine Inspiration all the calamities that were destined to come upon Israel. Nevertheless [even though he saw all the other troubles], he still began to shout out and lament in the name of the whole nation against the oppression that would be occasioned by the Ishmaelites. David said, "WOE IS ME, THAT I SOJOURN IN MESECH, THAT I DWELL IN THE TENTS OF KEDAR!" [Psalms 120:5]. Notice how David emphasizes "Kedar" out of all the other Children of Ishmael. This is because that Mad Man [Hebrew: "meshuga"] came from Kedar according to what has been published concerning his genealogy.
Source: Maimonides, "Letter to Yemen" 1:4.
Maimonides is referring to the fact that Mohammed was from the Koresh clan of Arabs and they claimed descent from Kedar son of Ishmael (Genesis 25:13).
-Maimonides continues to explain from Daniel 8:10 that Ishmael will ultimately be defeated by Israel.

Maimonides ("Rambam", 1135-1204). Born in Muslim Spain, he was one of the greatest Jewish legal authorities and religious philosophers. Maimonides served as personal physician to Saladin King of Egypt. He was offered a post by Richard-I of England but refused it.
Comment by Douglas Augustine:
Far and away with barely anything in second place, islam is the worst thing to ever curse the planet earth (I refuse to use a capital "I" for "islam" or a capital "M" for "muslim(s)). It is responsible for more genocide than any other competing force in history in numbers that dwarf anything Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot caused combined. Some estimates for the death caused in India over time approach 600 million souls! That might be overstated, but if even one-quarter of that number, it is still staggering to attempt to comprehend the amount of suffering islam has caused. Add to that upward of one million white slaves taken from Eastern Europe over the centuries consisting of young boys for conversion and women for sex slaves (males with pubic hair were simply slaughtered). Next, look at Africa where the black man was subjected to a form of slavery that made North America's look benign by contrast. Over a thousand years, it is estimated that 100 million souls were taken into slavery by Arab slave traders in conditions that can only be characterized as approaching hell on earth. Only 10% even survived the trip. Those that did were castrated if males and worked to death in the fields over the course of a five-year period. Females that survived were, in typical muslim fashion, made into sex slaves with any resulting progeny simply killed off. This explains the lack of negro genes in much of the Middle East despite the vast numbers of black slaves. Islam is satan's greatest masterpiece which seems aimed specifically at breaking each and every one of the 10 Commandments.
